I've always wanted a picnic wedding reception where everybody could relax and enjoy themselves, my dream came true with the perfect day.
We met five years ago on the day that we got married, it was meant to be that it fell on the right day.
About three weeks before the big day there was still a drought in Pretoria, the pond was empty and the grass bleak. We were blessed that a week after we went to view the venue, it started raining and almost instantly the pond was full and the grass green.
The day was perfect! I thought that I would be nervous but everything went smoothly from the moment I woke. I constantly kept an eye on the weather, seeing that it was a picnic, but the weather was wonderful with clouds and a little sun just enough for the day not to be too warm.
The venue, Misty Meadows, was so beautiful and professional. Catering for any and every person, young and old. The children could run around and enjoy themselves while the parents and adults could sit back and enjoy the day.
The caterer, Pik n Happie, made the most delicious foods also catering for all and even leaving the leftovers for us for the night and providing a platter for before and while getting ready.
The makeup artist, The Ultimate Image, made me truly look and feel like a princess. Looking at photo's people still can't believe it's the same person.
For our photographer, Blom Photography, it was their first wedding event but would never have guessed as they captured us from any and every angle and also capturing the stolen photos we never even knew about until we received our photos.
Not to forget all our family and friends which enjoyed the wonderful day with us. They are the people closest to us, who was with us every step of the way when we started our journey together and we are sure they will continue together on our future journey.
We could not have asked for a better and more wonderful day and of course most important we couldn't have asked for a better partner in each other.
